Not only does the locomotive have top-notch craftsmanship, but it has engine strength to back it up. We tested this locomotive by adding weight to the train cars to determine the pull strength of the locomotive. The Lionel Pennsylvania Flyer was able to pull up to 13 additional pounds, the maximum amount of weight we used to test. It handled the feat with ease. If you add additional train cars to this set, you won't have to worry about the locomotive's ability to pull them.
The Lionel Pennsylvania Flyer LionChief is an O-gauge model train. This is the second largest model scale, only behind G-gauge models. The train set includes the locomotive, tender, boxcar, tanker and caboose. Each car has die-cast trucks (the wheel and frame the cars sit on) and also features metal handrails and ladders on the tank car. This attention to detail makes Lionel trains sturdy and essentially maintenance-free but also provides a lifelike feel.
The build quality and the detail of this model train are impressive. The Lionel Pennsylvania Flyer looks and sounds like a real train, but also boasts superior build quality that will stand the test of time. This model train is a great option for both young and old train enthusiasts.
